So why in the world would one create a hovering or levitating mouse? It has nothing to do with interacting with 3-D graphics, but I personally think that is a good idea.
The Bat, by Kibardin Design, is designed to prevent Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. You see, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is the result of pressure on the median nerve, the one that supplies feeling and movement to parts of the hand. With this nerve lifted up and off the desk, it alleviates the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome that plagues many keyboard and mouse users.
Just so you know, the mouse can float about 40 mm (1 1/2 inches) off the base, and this is when the hand is not resting on it. It is about 10 mm at that point.
So, is this what mice of the future will look like? I suppose we all thought that the future would give us things that hover, like cars, but this doesn’t seem to be the case.
